..you'll like this game! If you don't like dungeon-crawlers such as Forgotten Realms:Dark Alliance, Diablo or Champions, don't waste your time. I really feel like this game has been given an unfair shake by people who just hate this type of game or don't have an HDTV. While it isn't ground-breaking, the game is fun and looks great on an HDTV. My wife and I were looking for something to play together (she's not a fan of FPS) so we picked this up. We've been playing 2 player co-op throughout the entire game. The view is similar to DA and CoN in that the camera is above the map, no split screen. The camera is the biggest strike against this game. It can be frustrating at times, unintentionally blocking your view with map scenery. Thankfully you can reposition the view with the right thumbstick. Overall the game is at least worth a rental if you like this genre. Personally I liked the game enough to actually buy it! :)
This game is extremely repetitive and obvious. The linear game play mixed with the stupid puzzles and the inability to buy and sell armor yields a flop. What is with the lack of weapon choice? The cinematics were of good quality and the texture and landscape were well done, but if they had added in a little bit of D2 (Diablo 2) to the game they could have had a hit.
